Geo-Structural Engineering Investigations
Damage to soil-supported and soil-retaining structures such as foundations, swimming pools, above and below ground tanks, and retaining walls can be caused by a variety of factors including settlement, vibrations, flooding, water intrusion or a combination thereof. Many of these losses require full understanding of the interaction between the structure and the soil around it. Most of our forensic structural engineers received graduate level training in soil-structure interaction, slope stability, and geo-structural engineering. They have utilized their high-level academic training and the most advanced software tools in this field to help demystify complex losses involving foundation walls, retaining walls and road embankment failures. Our geo-structural experts expeditiously examine and document the loss, conduct the necessary geo-structural analyses, identify the most likely cause of the damage, and devise effective loss mitigation strategies.
